Absolutely! I got all 4 for $400. They are steadily getting filled up & seem pretty durable so far. I got some really cool cabinets from my wife’s deceased grandfather yesterday that are super cool & extremely rugged too. I’ll throw a pic of them up soon too.

I wish my shop was the size of yours, but I’m proud to have one finally.

Re: Finally...a new shop at the house

But Doug, I’d sure like the chance to try and fill that much space up.

But just an FWIW, I have another 21x24’ enclosed building, a 24’x18” Garage & a 24”x24” carport full of car related stuff too.

Re: Finally...a new shop at the house

Well, after some discussion with a good buddy, a/c is in the very near future. Hope to start the install by the end of the week :happyhappyjoyjoy:

My reasoning: 88 degrees outside today for the high, just came out of the shop (@18:40) and it was 85. It’s not even hot yet & the humidity is ridiculous!!!

Re: Finally...a new shop at the house

That sounds like a great idea! Any ideas yet on what type of system you will use?

Re: Finally...a new shop at the house

I’m going with an 8-ton unit. It includes indoor, outdoor & strip heat. Has a 10-10 warranty...& makes COLD AIR.

Re: Finally...a new shop at the house

Yeah, with the rocky a$$ soil here, I don’t foresee geothermal being cost effective. Yeah, the hot months may be a bit spendy, but the rest of the year shouldn’t be bad. Cold doesn’t really bother me, so I think the annual cost of running the system should be pretty tolerable.

Hell, I’ll sell off a few projects if that’ll keep myself cool.

Re: Finally...a new shop at the house

I’ve started the a/c install today. I got the disconnects wired, the outdoor pad laid for the outside unit & airhandler wired. Hope to get all of this finalized so I can get the a/c up and running after the holiday.

Re: Finally...a new shop at the house

Nice! Will you have duct work to disperse the cool air?

Re: Finally...a new shop at the house

Yeah! My buddy that got me these pieces owns a commercial hvac company and is going to build my duct work. I’m going to do some work on his 74 Bronco in trade, but I told him not until the cold air starts happening. I’m excited about the temperature drop, but truly stoked about the humidity drop. It’s like a steam sauna now that the humidity and heat are back in the south.

Re: Finally...a new shop at the house

The outside unit is placed, power has been run to the disconnects for both it & the indoor air-handler. Hope to have the rest in place and up & running by the weekend. Sure will be nice to be able to knock the edge of this d@mn heat & most of all...the miserable humidity.

I'm originally from Cullman and lived in Hayden until a year ago when I moved further south to Morris.
